Putin Says U.S. List of Oligarchs Is ‘Hostile Step’

Russian President Vladimir Putin says the Trump administration’s list of top officials and businesspeople is a “hostile step” that harms relations between Russia and the United States, the AP reports.

“Just 12 minutes before the deadline, the administration late on Monday released a long-awaited list of 114 Russian politicians and 96 ‘oligarchs’ who have flourished under Putin, fulfilling a demand by Congress that the U.S. punish Moscow for interfering in the 2016 U.S. election.”
